Anil D. Aggarwal and Jonathan Weiner, the founders of FinTech and payments event Money20/20 as well as NextGen Commerce and retail event Shoptalk, have launched RiskUp, a NYC-based new event for the insurance industry.
RiskUp covers the technologies, trends and business models that are redefining the insurance industry across all markets, including property and casualty as well as life and health.
By bringing together all key stakeholders from venture-backed startups to established leaders around the agenda, RiskUp provides an opportunity for dialogue and interaction that aims to serve as a catalyst to transform the insurance ecosystem.
Participants will include carriers, brokers, administrators and claims and billing processors, as well as established and next-generation technology and solution providers.
The three-day event will include a wide variety of formats and experiences that enable attendees to:
– discover technologies and trends as well as identify opportunities for strategic growth in their businesses;
– discuss the latest and most novel business models and products across all categories; and
– fund new initiatives.
In addition to organizing Money20/20 and Shoptalk, and now RiskUp, Aggarwal and Weiner are FinTech investors with Oak HC/FT, a $500m venture growth equity fund, and previously led Google’s payments business development group as well as two venture-backed tech companies, the most recent of which, TxVia, was acquired by Google in 2012.
